About Me

Hi, My name is Cindy. I was a stay at home-schooling mom. It was my dream job, and now my three children are up and grown and I am left with an empty nest. Now is the time to follow new dreams. I have always loved antiques, vintage style and interior design. Creating a home of beauty, living a simple lifestyle, and learning new things are a constant source of enjoyment for me. With the love and support of my husband, faith and family I hope to follow those dreams and see where they take me!

About French Grey

French Grey is my business including all things vintage, french, garden and simple style. Mostly selling at local antique and vintage shows, I plan to expand into interior and garden design services.

I stumbled upon a nice term for the tarnish that gets into the details of silver ~ french grey. It perfectly describes the aesthetic I hope to achieve in my home and through this blog. Join me as I find flea market finds, share design inspiration and everyday life in rural Montana.

I would love to hear from you. You can contact me at frenchgreyinteriors@gmail.com.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Cindy-You and I are indeed sisters of different Mums. 🙂 My Mum was born in Minot, ND but lived her life all over the US and Canada. My Grandparents were from Canada/Scotland and lived with us when I was a wee lass. Anyway,.I do love perusing your blog and wish for a place for my old and chippy/tarnished wares as well. Hopefully soon, I will have my own blog up and running for you to take a peak at. Dalenbeth

    Cindy,
    Your talent is a gift. Very nice to the eyes, simple yet beautiful.

    Do you sell any of your poducts to the public, like hear in Connecticut?

    Keep your dream….

    I understand this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew somewhere I could possibly acquire a
    captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    . Now I remember why I used to love this site.

    Kudos, I will try and check back more regularly. .
    How frequently do you update your blog.?

    Hi Cindy, I love reading your blog. I wish that we had more of the lovely antiques that you have in the US. I am ‘white’ woman and it so frustrates my family who love colour but I feel white is so soothing and brings out he very best in the details of the objects that you place around the house to make it home. Keep up the inspiring pictures and words

    Hi Cindy – I’m wondering if you still carry furniture/decor at the Missoula antique mall. I was there last summer and was super sad I didn’t have my truck with me to haul some of your amazing things – in particular a white drop leaf table. Do you happen to know if it’s still there by any chance? 🙂

    • french grey says:

      Hi Jessica,
      So glad you found me at the Antique Mall in Missoula! I’m sorry, the table sold awhile ago, but I always have new things coming in! Hope to see you next time you’re in town 🙂
      Blessings,
      Cindy

    Hi Cindy, are you still thinking of adding a store to your site? I happily found your space at the Missoula mall and would love to be able to shop online with you 🙂

    Hi Cindy,
    I was wondering if you still have a booth at the Missoula Antique Mall?
    I didn’t see it the last time I was there, but perhaps I just missed it!
    Love your style & offerings!
    Traci

    • french grey says:

      Hi Traci!
      I am no longer at the antique mall as of the first of the year. If there’s anything in particular that you are interested in you can IM me on Instagram @cindygardnerdesign or on my French-grey.com facebook page. I might be at the Prairie Sisters in May, still deciding. Thanks for asking, it’s nice to be missed 😊

      xoCindy
